Marbella Club Golf Resort

Benahavis


Course Description:

The Marbella Club Hotel is proud to present its 18 Hole Golf Course, designed by Dave Thomas.

Situated only a 20 minute drive from the Hotel, amidst the hills of Benahavis, this magnificent Marbella golf course in the heart of the Costa del Sol enjoys spectacular views of Gibraltar, the African Coastline, the Mediterranean and the surrounding mountains.

With limited play and twelve minutes between tee times, over-crowded rounds are not a concern at the Marbella Club Golf Course. Required handicaps: Ladies 36, Gentleman 28.

The picturesque first hole typifies the quality of the course’s design with beautifully contoured fairways and immaculate greens and marks the beginning of a memorable round of golf. The 18 holes measure in excess of 6,000 meters and comprise water features and demanding bunkers, a trademark of the course designer, encouraging players to search for the most advantageous approach shot. Bermuda 419 grass has been utilized on the fairways and tees, a blend of three grasses on the ante greens with a relatively new strain of American grass on the greens. The front nine provides the unique experience of three consecutive par 5s, which not only represent a severe test early in the round but also offer some of the most picturesque scenery on the golf course. The tee on the seventh is the highest point on the course and provides a panoramic view of the coastline, Gibraltar and across to Africa. Stretching for over 6000 meters, combining length with clever placement of bunkers and water hazards plus intriguing green designs, the par 73 course culminates in one of the most dramatic 18th tees in Europe. One of many elevated tees, the par 5 , reachable in two for some pros, is a memorable final hole.
